Stamp with fun #157–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  Another Monday has rolled around too quickly for my liking lol!  I wish we could work 2 days and have a 5 day weekend haha!  I don’t think the government or my bank manager would be very happy with that idea lol!

I’m here this morning to share my DT card for this week’s stamp with fun challenge.  Our theme this week is a really easy one and we expect lots of gorgeous entries – “favourite colours” – just let us know in your post what your favourite colours are!  Now I know some of you have an aversion to pink but I really like using it so my favourite colours are pink and kraft and here is my card:

SWF #157 - favourite colours

SWF #157 - favourite colours (close up)

I have also used one of my all time favourite sugar nellie stamps image called ‘just a girl’ and I’ve coloured her with promarkers.  I also decided to paper piece her dress for a change.  The pretty papers are from the forever friends ‘new arrival’ 6x6 designstax and the kraft card is from dies to die for.  The lace is from eBay and the butterflies were cut out with a die-namics die. 

The rest of the design team have created amazing cards as always, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

The sugar bowl challenge – sketch and option stripes/plaid

Joanna sheen challenge – for someone special (card is for a friend who is going through a tough time at the moment)

Crafts and me challenge – 3d embellishments

The pixie cottage challenge – sketch and/or paper piecing

CES challenge – paper piece it

Drunken stampers challenge – you’re a krafty one

Totally gorjuss challenge – bling

Penny black and more challenge – oh so cute

 Pretty little ribbon shop challenge – to die for

Stamptacular challenge – freebie week

I hope you can join in with our challenge this week and I cannot wait to see what you create.  I’ll be back later with the details of the brand new challenge over at cupcake craft challenge, although I don’t have a card to share this week as it’s the turn of Team B to showcase their work.  Whatever you’re up to today have a wonderful time and thanks for stopping by.

Simply wonderful Den, it's lovely to see that little lass (mine is sorely neglected, oh the shame). I love pink, and it works so well with the kraft. Such a pretty creation hun. Work 2 days, 5 days off, but no reduction in pay - that'd be my week! Hugs, Sxx
